Macally TankP6M-B Durable Case for iPhone 6 Review
      #47391 - 12/05/14 06:20 PM

The Macally TankP6M-B Durable Case for the iPhone 6 is a two-layer case that can protect your phone from scratches, bumps and even drop damage. The case offers easy installation and removal and non-slip surface. It's protective yet not super bulky or heavy. The case offers cutouts for ports and covers for buttons, but some of these get in the way of using the phone smoothly.



Design

The Macally TankP6M-B Durable Case has an inner layer of flexible TPU that fits the iPhone 6 like a glove. The ridges on the back offer extra shock protection. Outside the TPU cover, the Macally has a ribbed hard shell case that integrates with the TPU cover seamlessly. The hard shell provides extra structural protection and an extra layer of hard armor around the sides, corners and back. The hard shell has soft touch coating that feels nice in hand and it's not slippery. The two-layer design ensures easy installation and removal of the case. The case goes above the front display so that when you put the phone face down, the case will create a barrier for the screen from scratches.



Features

The Macally TankP6M-B Durable Case has generous cutouts for the side silence button and the rear camera/flash cluster. It also has separate cutouts for the bottom ports. While the cutouts for the speaker, the Lightning port and mic are sufficient, the cutout for the 3.5mm jack is a bit off. We tested the case with several wired headphones, and found it worked with half of the of headphones we tried. The TPU layer covers the power button and the volume buttons on the phone. Though the button covers are raised, it's still a bit hard to press these buttons under the covers.



Conclusion

The Macally TankP6M-B Durable Case for iPhone 6 has some very nice features including a two-layer design that's very protective and easy to use. The surface of the case is coated to ensure a secure grip and the ribbed design looks cool though it comes in only gray/black combo. The buttons are a bit hard to use under the TPU cover. If you're using headphones with short 3.5mm plugs, you'll have trouble using the phone's audio jack while it's in this case.
